Abstract

This books seeks to highlight the peculiarities of pedagogy through a series of dialogues between academics, academic developers and an institutional manager. The previous chapters have largely focused on what these dialogues can tell us about teaching in higher education. In this concluding chapter, I want to shift this focus to consider what these dialogues have highlighted about the peculiar nature of academic development. In exploring this, I write in dialogue with the preceding chapters, which I use as a jumping off point to explore the meaning of academic development and to develop an agenda for the kind of academic development that can support the enhancement of teaching and learning at an institutional and sector wide level.
